lyrics

examine what's on the table: spread all the pieces out, and run a finger down each edge, each curve, every tooth, each notch.
turn over from back to front each fragment, one by one. and press each tongue against each mouth to feel if they interlock.

maybe this game is how I'll know what I'm meant to build before it's made.
maybe this game is how I'll recognize the picture before it all fits together.

lean forward to slide together, lean back to try and catch some promise of a pattern, or a path.

some moments, the focus narrows: one image fills the view. the back-ground fades, becomes an unthought thought.
but I wonder, when I get tired, are all the pieces here? without a 'one' to count from it's impossible to take stock.

maybe this game is how I'll know what I'm meant to build before it's made.
maybe this game is how I'll recognize the picture before it all fits together.

admire the scene created: the holes that may never fill. believing there is just enough to know both what's seen and what's not.
